Anxiety & Depression

This therapeutic CPD weekend training covers the most common conditions we are faced with as yoga practitioners, this event  is Day 1 ONLY of a Two day event which also stands alone.  Day 1 – anxiety & depression, (Day 2 – upper and lower back pain can be booked seperately or together with Day 1 Mental Health & Yoga Therapy | Yoga Scotland)

When these common physical and mental health conditions get in the way of living life fully, it’s a somatic call that something needs to change.  

How do we listen to the call and make lasting changes in our lives? 

To learn more about how to guide health seekers towards recovery, reconnection and transformation, join yoga therapist and trainer, Judy Hirsh Sampath in a day of enquiry and sharing.  

You will come away with resources that you can integrate immediately, and share in meeting your students, clients and your Self. 

Yoga therapy takes into consideration the whole person as a unique being, with their own life histories and experiences. This work aims to provide many resources for practitioners, teachers and therapists in meeting individual needs. 

Anxiety & Depression 

We will meet anxiety and depression through the lens of yoga and ayurveda. We will enquire and explore practical ways to engage the body to interrupt repetitive negative thinking that can manifest in physical dis-ease. We will adapt asana, apply appropriate breathing practices, use focussing techniques and trauma-sensitive language to shift a fixed mindset and mood. 

We will work with somatic expression, opposites, forgotten resources as well as new ones, take time to unwind and notice resistance – to read the body signals and move into states of acknowledging, accepting and allowing felt sensations to move through the body.

Judy Hirsh Sampath

During an intensive period of self-enquiry and mediation, Judy came to a revelation: her body loved her unconditionally, and all she had to do was love it back. It sounded so simple but she found it wasn’t so simple in practice. It awakened a chain of self-enquiry that is an ongoing life journey of self-healing and wholeness.

The awareness came to her when the noise of the critical mind was turned down to make way for the intuitive, quieter wise part of herself to speak. Ever since, Judy has been exploring how to tune into the body’s wisdom, receive its encoded messages, learn to understand and trust them; and support others in finding their own answers and independence.

She engages yoga, mindfulness, meditation and therapies to unlock the bodies’ natural intelligence to educate people to become experts in themselves and empower them towards finding their own answers, and into their own journey of repair, healing and joy. Awareness, perception, acceptance, and non-judgment are powerful tools to create personal choices to deal with stress, troubles, worry, difficult emotions – and leads to a healthier, richer and more joyful outlook on life.
